Mrs Housewife was a prisoner in her own household! She couldn't go out shopping, see her friends or do anything!! (Ever here of the bus or a taxi lady?). She "had to wait til Thursday night when Dave brought the car home". Wait, wait, hold on a second??? Is Dave gone EVERY WEEK? IS Dave gone Friday Evening?? Luckily, they brought another Ford in the household, and now she's free 'to do whatever I want'. I guess Mrs. Housewife is free to have an affair with someone who is not away from the house all the time??? Gee, I feel so old fashioned, but that's how I feel about Dave and Mrs Housewife's 'freedom'. Totally ridiculous.. This is a MUST SEE on this site!!!
